Symphony IZUMO (301) One of the Masterpieces

32min.

Completed on 21st November, 2004
First performed on 19th May, 2005 at Tokyo Metropolitan Hibiya Public Hall
Princess Hisako from Japanese royal family was attended and it was great success.

The best 30 members were selected for the only one night. The performance was with solo orchestra for the premier and later this work was rewritten for the full orchestra. The symphony is consisted of four movements. Hiro worked on it with his whole heart and soul into this piece for more than two and half years to complete. This music was inspired by history of IZUMO, where is believed as “the land of gods” described in “Kojiki”, the oldest extant manuscript of myths and legends in Japan, however the music does not depict the history or mythology. The main theme lies on on this piece is love and being thoughtful mind, and wishing “wold peace”. (184pages / Duration: approx.32min.)

Letter from Ralph Mace, music producer;
 I listened to the CD of Izumo yesterday. It is wonderful. I am so impressed and enjoyed it so much. It was a very cold day, so I went to my studio, turned up the heater and switched on the hi-fi (nice and loud!). Immediately I found myself in a totally new, powerful world. The dramatic impact is enormous, the melodies flow like a mighty river and the orchestral colorings are magical. Congratulations! What a long way it seems from the time we first met in my office in London. And how your talent has blossomed into something so very special.”

The first performance was 30-member-orchestra with Solo Orchestra, after that it was rewritten for full orchestra and wind orchestra.

This music was initially inspired by Hiro’s homeland,Gifu where is surrounded by beautiful greenery, mountains  and rivers then his imagination moved on to the history as well as the great nature of Japan. 

Respecting classical structure, it’s been written to be totally new style of symphony with combining with Japanese traditional drums in the 4th movement. The 1st movement starts with the dramatic and mighty introduction. The beautiful horn melody changes the theme of the piece in the second movement and it plays an important role throughout the lest of the music. Hiro wishes this music tells the Japanese beautiful spirit to people all over the world. This is how it titled “JAPAN”. Use your imagination to feel Japan spirit!

Aqua Rhythm – Symphony Orchestra (303)

15min.

The original music was for string orchestra with pipe organ(304), commissioned by Salamanca Hall in Japan ,where possesses a beautiful pipe organ. The original piece had long way to be performed more than 13 years from the completion of the composition. 

This music is inspired by various kinds of sounds from water stream, such as spring water, a mountain stream, murmuring, waterfall, river, and so on. These sounds always create different rhythms that amuse people. There are many expressions on water in Japan ,and Hiro likes a phrase that  “The flowing river never stops and yet the water never stays the same.”. The sounds of water reminds the greatness of the nature as well as our own existence. This music is based on his imagination over the various forms of water. The music is consisted of two movements. In the first movement, Allegro with 5 beats, then moves on to Adagio in the second movement. Hiro wishes the blessings of water will never change and continue to enrich our life for many years to come, at the same time this music will be played by many people in all over the world, since it had not been seen the light of day for many years.

Aqua Rhythm – Pipe Organ with String Orchestra (304)

15min.

This is the original version of “Aqua Rhythm”.
The story behind this commission was that Mr. Tsuji who created the pipe organ for the Salamanca Hall wished to preserve a music, created by a composer from Gifu prefecture.  He explained all detail structures of the organ and made Hiro listen the sounds of the instruments for many hours. In response to his thoughts, Hiro started creating this music and completed on 1998, however the piece was completely shelved for many years, since Mr. Tsuji past away and staff came and went, then nobody knew even the existence of this music over 13 years.  It is not rare for composers, their music are not viewing to audience for many years, for instance, the unfinished symphony by Schubert was first performed almost 37 years after his death and 43years passed from the completion of the composition. 13 years may not be too long to be shelved, however Hiro could not think it was 
someone else’s problem, since Hiro is the same birthday as Schubert coincidentally. Hiro didn’t want to leave this music just bad luck, so he changed it into Aqua Rhythm for mandolin orchestra and finally it was spited the light.  Then plectrum quartet version was released and performed in Tokyo and became popular in many places. 

In 2008, Muse-Factory.com was opened and contracted with Universal Music Publishing International in London, Hiro’s music was introduced worldwide, at the same time the original version of Aqua Rhythm with pipe organ was released through the internet. Accidentally It got an attention from Mr. Kawamura from Gifu Chamber Ensemble and finally it had a chance to be performed at Salamanca Hall which originally committed this music. The thoughts of Mr. Tsuji and his staff, also the fate of this music made this miracle happen, then it’s been performed not only in countries from Asia but also from Europe.

Review from CD; (translated in English)
